The Breakaway is here!!!

Breakaway

After much fanfare, the Norwegian Breakaway has arrived and the reviews are in.  This ship is the talk of the industry!  The design, the entertainment and the features are second to none.  The Breakaway is now the trendsetter when it comes to mainstream cruising.  Ocean Blue with Geoffrey Zackarian (Iron Chef) is an absolute hit, so popular the price is soon to be raised to $49 per person, which is still far undervalued for food and experience of this quality.  678 Ocean Place, which are decks; 6, 7 and 8 are where most of the action will take place on board. Night clubs, restaurants and of course the casino.  Our guests will not have to walk far to find their next adventure.

The Breakaway experience has been likened to that of many luxury cruises.  Guests just off the inaugural were comparing the ship and overall cruise to the likes of luxury liners of Oceania. The decor, staff and staterooms are all part of the Norwegian freestyle experience.  You can’t find this kind of cruise on any other line.  The Haven, the fastest water slide at sea, the Cake Boss and three broadway shows. Where else are you going to find this much entertainment and activity combined with a feel of luxury and intimacy?  An all inclusive?  I think not.

Norwegian is known for being the trendsetter of the industry, setting many cruising firsts over the course of its existence, and the Breakaway is just the latest and greatest of Norwegian’s accomplishments.  Check out the Breakaway website, http://www.breakaway.ncl.com/  then make sure you call your Personal Cruise Consultant for all the latest details.  The Breakaway is sailing to Bermuda and the Bahamas exclusively from New York City year around.

Norwegian Sky 3 day cruise

If you want a weekend getaway and you love to cruise, or if you want to get to know what a cruise is like, this three day escape is your chance.  The Sky is an absolutely beautiful ship.  Norwegian is dominating the competition for this type of cruise.  It is the newest ship with the most staff per guest and the most recently refurbished.  You will find great activities from the White Hot Party to the Art Auction (where you can grab some free bubbly as well).

Your first port stop will be Norwegian’s private Island, Great Stirrup Cay.  Norwegian has done a great job turning this small island into an excellent beach day.  You will find private cabanas, volleyball tournaments, jet ski excursions, a straw market and of course an excellent buffet.  Don’t forget your sunscreen, you will spend a lot of time in the sun.

After you are done checking out the private island, you can escape back to the ship for some spa specials or an empty pool deck.  It is a great chance to explore and enjoy the ship.  The tenders (transport from island to the ship) run about every 20-30 minutes, so, you won’t have to wait long to get back aboard.

Your second stop will be at beautiful Nassau Bahamas.  Here, I recommend either being the first person off the ship or one of the last.  Why wait in line on your vacation?  Once on this island, you will find people offering taxi’s, jewelry and other, darker, items.  Just a word of warning, if you engage the street vendors, it will be tough to shrug them off.  Why not try one of Norwegian’s shore excursions?  A parasailing adventure or  a quick ferry over to Blue Lagoon for some snorkeling or swimming with the Dolphins? Of course, the choice is yours, it’s your vacation!

The Sky is a great ship for all ages.  The staff puts on excellent shows and activities, the casino for adults, the White Hot Party (Norwegian’s Signature late night party), where I saw a 12 year old kid leading the dancing on stage!  No fear for that kid.  Latin beats in the Outrigger Lounge (Deck 11 Forward) and many other excellent locations for viewing the sea and finding a sense of adventure!  Book your Sky cruise ASAP!
